The Holden Kemble Theatre Company presents
The SCANDALOUS CASE OF DR JEKYLL AND MR HYDE

Adapted
for the stage from Robert Louis Stevenson's novella by Paul Kemble


'Robert Louis Stevensonís oft read taleÖ has been staged, filmed, and televised before but never, I am sure, so effectively as in this thrilling version.' Richmond and Twickenham Times

'Robin Holden takes the two titular characters and undergoes a truly skilful transformation from one to the other. Itís a highly authentic piece of acting. Philip Mansfield visibly ages himself into Jekyllís mentor Dr Lanyon. There is much to recommend this play - the writing, the diversity of the performers and the authentic creation of the atmosphere of the original piece.' The Stage

'Robin Holden is equally convincing in both roles, a tour de force is no exaggeration. Miss Nicole Hartley is both appealing and moving as the much put upon wife, and their maidservant, while Philip Mansfield as a fellow doctor and the family solicitor exudes legal respectability, and rectitude. Altogether great entertainment and just the job to start the Christmas season.'

Chiswick Times

Following a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival, The Holden Kemble Theatre Company bring a chilling new adaptation of Robert Louis Stevensonís classic horror - with a cut-throat razor-sharp modern edge.

Young physician Dr Henry Jekyll is desperate to make a name for himself, researching hazardous and revolutionary medicine. One dark night he appears at the office of his solicitor, Gabriel Utterson, demanding that his will be redrawn to exclude his devoted wife and to bequeath all his possessions and considerable inheritance to the notorious Edward Hyde, a violent and vicious villain.

Driven by dread-filled rumours and religious righteousness, the lawyerís investigation soon becomes an obsession, as he finds his own moral surety under attack when faced with chilling scientific heresy, hot-blooded adultery and brutal murder.

Set against a backdrop of conflicted Victorian values, The Scandalous Case Of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde is a thrilling visceral journey into the duality of one man's nature.

Warning: contains scenes of violence & strong language. Not suitable for children.
